YES, TAIWAN - 2014 Taiwan Biennial
With a sense of mission for Taiwanese art in mind, we aim to incorporate the diverse features found in the art of our nation into the organization of this exhibition, which is conducted through comprehensive studies and also the dynamic two-fold approach of theme-based exhibition and open call for entries. We look forward to the contributions from different artists and to be able to document the present and future art history of Taiwan based on a complete and enriched perspective. After in-depth studies by the staff members of our museum and also through joint discussions and exchanges, 38 artists/collectives are selected to be featured in this year’s YES, TAIWAN - Taiwan Biennial, as we joined together in witnessing the diversity and richness of visual art in Taiwan.
As a biennial that focuses on Taiwanese art, these 38 contributing artists/collectives not only represent 38 different creative journeys; they also symbolize the interconnected impacts and interdisciplinary dialogues that are happening between different art genres found on the vibrant land of Taiwan. They have come together to form a powerful surge in the developmental course of Taiwanese art, as they take root to cultivate this terrain of culture that we all collectively enjoy. Because of the realizations achieved by the many outstanding artists, Taiwanese art is continuously striving forward, with horizons unremittingly being broadened. We hope that in this globalized era, with each YES, TAIWAN - Taiwan Biennial acting as a witness for a specific segment in time, Taiwanese art’s unique features will be able to rise and shine ever so brightly in the transnational world of art.
